Hi, everyone! I know it’s been a hot minute since I’ve last posted (getting ready to go back to college was a struggle, haha). So, I wanted to start out nice and easy with a book tag! I understand that it isn’t quite fall yet, but I always made fall synonymous with September, so here we are.
Here are the rules for this tag:
- Link back to Bionic Book Worm, as the creator of this tag!!
- Use the graphics – if you want 🙂
- Have fun!
Without further ado, let’s begin!
1. Crisp Fall Air: a book that felt fresh and new
I’m going to have to pick The Diviners by Libba Bray! Even though I’m only five or six hours into the audiobook, I’ve been loving it. I suppose the aspect of kids having magical powers isn’t entirely new, but the setting (1920s New York) has a great feel to it, and I think the narration is phenomenal. Definitely something that’s new. Continue reading “BOOK TAG #8 | Fall Book Tag”
So, today I wanted to talk about tropes and cliches.

Thank you to everyone who’s still following after my lil almost-two-weeks hiatus!! I just was in a slump, both blogging- and reading-wise, so it was hard for me to really do anything. However, I’m hoping that I can pick it up again and keep moving!
So, to ease back into things, I thought I would do a book tag! I found this one while perusing through WordPress, so thanks to The Bibliophile Empress for doing it, so I eventually found it! Without further ado, let’s get started.
1. Do you get sick while reading in the car?
Nope, not at all! I normally don’t get car sick at all, unless I ate some bad food or not feeling well before hand.
2. Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why?
I don’t know if this counts as writing style, but I love the voices used in Rick Riordan’s books. Percy’s voice in PJO and everyone’s voices in HoO always seemed unique to each other, and I had so much fun reading them.

I know a lot of bloggers/Booktubers do this tag, but I decided to do after seeing LaRonda @ Flying Paperbacks do it. Looks like a cute lil thing, and I finally got around to it!
1. Best book you’ve read this year?
I read a lot of different genres, including fiction and non-fiction, so I’ll do one fiction book and one non-fiction book.
For non-fiction, I really enjoyed Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town by Jon Krakauer. I loved reading it and getting angry over all the shitty things the authorities did. But I’m petty like that.
There are a lot of fiction books I loved so far this year, but I’ll have to say Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo was my favorite. I thought it tied everything up nicely, and I enjoyed the plot and character development as I read. Also, fun fact, apparently Bardugo has a long-term plan, which includes another Six of Crows book?? I’m in.

Was looking through WordPress to decide what to do for a book tag, and found this one. I thought it was cute, so I decided to go ahead with it!
- Please link back to Daniel @ Page to Page
- Respond to the scenarios
- Tag 5 people (or however many you like)
It’s time to make your bed, but you’re going to have some friends over later and want to pick the perfect book to place on your nightstand for them all to see that you’re “reading”. Which book do you choose?
I think it might be goofy to have friends in my bedroom if I live in an apartment or a house, but I’ll play along. Probably the pretty version of Pride and Prejudice that I own (pictured below). I really enjoy the book, and the cover is very nice-looking, I think.

1. Answer the questions below
2. Credit the creator Jamie @ALittleSliceofJamie
3. Tag at least 5 people- most probably won’t
4. Have fun!
1. Where do you typically write your blog posts?
At my desk, on my laptop.
2. How long does it generally take you to write a book review?
I don’t really keep track, but probably anywhere between thirty minutes to an hour. Sometimes over, if it’s a longer review.
3. When did you start your book blog?
Uhhh, I think it was back in March?? But I don’t know the exact date.

Hey, everyone! This tag is brought to you by Lynne, AKA fictionophile; I found this tag whilst rummaging through WordPress, and I thought it was pretty neat. Here are the rules, as quoted from Lynn’s post:
“1. Spell out your blog’s name. (this is where you wish your blog’s name was shorter LOL)
“2. Find a book from your TBR that begins with each letter. (Note you cannot ADD to your TBR to complete this challenge – the books must already be on your Goodread’s TBR)
“3. Have fun!”

S. “Shadow and Bone” by Leigh Bardugo

So no one tagged me to do this; I just like looking for tags because they’re fun! While specifically looking for book tags on WordPress, I came across Kris from Boston Book Reader do this one here!
1. How many books is too many books in a series?
I feel like once you get around ten or so in a book series where the plot grows with each book, it gets to be a bit ridiculous. However, if it’s something like James Patterson and his Alex Cross series, where you don’t have to read the books in order, I think that’s fine.
2. How do you feel about cliff hangers?
I’m pretty indifferent about them. The only thing that slightly annoys me is if I read a book, it has a cliffhanger, and then I have to wait one or two years until the sequel comes out. Because my memory sucks, and I would have to re-read the original book by the time it’s sequel comes out, lol.

I haven’t done a book tag post in a while, so I figured I should do one! I know the traditional way of doing tags is…ya know, actually being tagged by someone to do it. But when did I ever did anything the traditional way? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (…I actually did a few things the “traditional way,” but we’ll just conveniently ignore that.)
So, here you are, another book tag! It’s a little “would you rather,” book edition. I don’t know who quite came up with it, but I personally saw it done first here.
1. Would you rather read only series or only stand-alones?
Series! If I end up liking the characters and the world they’re in, I can come back for more. I would only get one story with them if I only read stand-alones.

I figured I should start my new book blog with something I found through perusing the Internet: the Book Blog Newbie tag! It looks like this particular version originated from Love and Other Bookish Things. Soooo, let’s go~.
1. Why did you start this blog?
Short answer: one day back in January, my brain latched on to the idea of a book blog, and I finally got around to it.
Long answer: I’ve been increasingly becoming a part of book Twitter and watching BookTube, and I like perusing through blogs, looking at different people’s reviews and thoughts about books. So, here we are. A girl with a blog and no idea how to make it look aesthetically pleasing.
